alcohol inked and bloomtangled again

Did you see my post yesterday where I was inspired by this amazing card by Janette K and it occurred to me that I could do something similar using a cover plate die? AND one of the alcohol ink on Yupo backgrounds I'd just created (maybe you saw these on IG). I'm so proud of myself. I used a second BG right away!

I wanted to use the Yupo BG that had warped from too much heat gun. So with the cool colors, I chose to use a white die cut. I had the bottom portion and the sentiment done but was stumped as to what to do with the white space up top. Sprinkled some sequins but it needed something meatier. Enter another fussy cut portion of the die cut and another bit of the inked BG! Glued everything together with Multi Matte medium.

I would like to take this to:

Absolutely LOVE this technique - just seeing those colours framed by the white - and the black in your previous card. Just makes it pop out so much. xx

Beautiful card Maria. I have only recently bought some Alcohol Inks and tried on photo paper. I am about to buy some Yupo Paper from an Art Shop in a few days and can't wait to experiment more. Of course I know I now NEED more inks. Also just received my bloomtanged die. Love your AI background with that gorgeous die.
